The best kept secret in music


"By Charlie Zeleny ~ Drummer/Band Leader for ZUU"

When it comes to Female Country Pop there are only a handful of names that come to mind: Shania Twain, Faith Hill and LeAnn Rhymes. If there is any justice in the music industry today, Cheree Silcox should be a household name within the next couple of years. Her voice soars over the catchy hooks and country pop lyrics with ease and you'll find yourself humming the tune even after one listen. Definitely a winner, keep your ears open for Cheree Silcox. -

"Pensacolian Cheree Silcox is planning a show, with a little help
from her friends."

"She hopes it will not only showcase her talent in song and
dance, but also raise funds for her favorite charity, St. Jude
Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn."

"She has one week to sell nearly 400 tickets for the Aug. 11
performance, for which she has rented the Pensacola Cultural
Center's theater, and still save enough energy to go onstage that
night and wow them with her act."

"Silcox, 23, has written herself a tall order, but she has lots of
help, her mother, Peggy Cobb, is helping with promotion and
arrangements on the sidelines, and she'll be joined onstage by
three talented family members, and other friends."

" "I hope it will sell out," said Silcox, a recent graduate of the University of Alabama. "I'd like to raise about
$4,000 for the hospital. I think we will sell out for the cause." "

"Experience, dedication"

"Cobb said her daughter's optimism is based equally on experience and dedication."

" "As a freshmen in college, she joined Epsilon Sigma Alpha, a service sorority that chose St. Jude's as their
cause." Cobb said. "She's done walk-a-thons and car washes, all kinds of events practically by herself, to
support the hospital."

"St. Jude, founded in 1962, cares for children with life-threatening illnesses, including cancer, Silcox said.
While in Memphis, she visited there with other members of the national ESA service organization."

" "We got to go and see children recovering from chemotherapy, and we saw where they do their research, in a
new section of the hospital. There's an entire floor that was paid for by chapters of ESA, " she said. "We
(members of ESA) gave them about $7.6 million dollars this year alone." "

"She will have support for the concert from the closest Epsilon Sigma Alpha chapter, which is in Panama City,
and she's been helped by a Brewton radio station with some publicity and ticket giveaways. Folks from St.
Jude fund-raising headquarters in Florida will serve as show emcees."

"The two-hour show will feature Silcox, a singer and dancer who recently signed to have her music produced
in Nashville, performing country-western songs in concert format, complete with back-up dancers and
costume changes."

"Brian Lisenby, an Alabama country-western singer signed with the same music production company, is also on
the bill, and the show will be opened by Midnight Special, a three-person group of guitars and drums from
Evergreen, Ala."

"Guitarists Adam Cobb, 19, Andy Cobb, 16 and drummer Torey Cobb, 9, are her cousins."

"I figured they would be a crowd pleaser," Silcox said. "They have been playing for several years." "

"Adam Cobb said they'll be playing songs made famous by the Rolling Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bad Company
and Creedence Clearwater Revival."

"Also onstage will be Silcox's friends Kimberly Vancil of Gulf Breeze and Michelle Turner of Saraland, whose
dance moves Silcox has choreographed."

"Although expenses of putting on the show are considerable, including building rental, Silcox is not worried
about success."

" "My mom is handling that, and letting me worry about the stresses of the performance part," she said."

"The show idea came from her recording company producers, who advised her to put on a concert to help gain
exposure and experience in performing before a large audience. Since she felt she did not need to do a show
for profit, she decided to make it a fund-raiser, she said."

"Making a difference"

"She contacted St. Jude fund-raising staff members, Courtney Rader and Joe Witcher, regional representatives,
two months ago and offered to do the benefit show."

" "She's done a wonderful job," Rader said, noting she and Witcher will also be at the event to serve as emcees
and to talk briefly about St. Jude."

"The ladies of ESA in Florida raised over $348,000 for St. Jude in 1999," Rader said. "This show will make a
difference in the lives of many children." "

" "We have several radioathons each year, one in Fort Walton Beach and one in Panama City. Last year, the
Saturn dealership in Pensacola helped raise $18,000 for St. Jude, but that was the only fund-raising event in
Pensacola for us last year."

Cheree Silcox (Nashville)


Pensacola native/Nashville resident Silcox has a four-octave range and the kind of Country/Pop intuition that made stars
out of Shania Twain and Faith Hill. Silcox has been singing since she was a child and her nearly lifelong experience
singing in choruses, plays, musicals and as a soloist is plainly evident on her 2005 debut album, In His Dreams. Can
chart success be far behind?

Feeling a bit camera shy


Cheree Silcox (Shuh-ree Sill-cox) is working hard to make her dream come true. After uprooting her husband and her 3-year-old son, Cheree made the move to Nashville from Pensacola, FL (to go for it). She is determined and talented. With her songwriting ability and her soft sweet vocals, she has what it takes to be a huge success in the Country music industry.

Cheree has performed all over the Gulf Coast, Alabama, as well as in Tennessee. Some performance credits include, opening for Doug Stone, Headlining the New Artist Showcase for the St. Jude Kids, opening for Clinton Gregory, singing the National Anthem for the Pensacola Barracudas, and singing on stage with Shania Twain.

Shortly after relocating to Nashville, Cheree signed a record deal with a brand new independent label called MY Records Nashville. Since teaming up with MRN, Cheree has had two single releases to Country Radio. Both of which have done really well in the New Music Weekly Country Charts. "In Love Alone" peaked at No. 40 on the NMW Country Main Chart and No. 14 on the NMW Country Indie Chart. "In His Dreams" peaked at No. 52 on the NMW Country Main Chart and No. 17 on the NMW Country Indie Chart.

Cheree’s music background stems from her mother. “My mom was a singer in her church choir. She taught me a lot of the gospel music that she would sing as a kid.” On top of this, her parents listened to nothing but Country Music. “I grew up listening to Barbara Mandrell, Dolly, Dan Seals, and Alabama. We had all the old 8 tracks, plus 45’s. I called them mine, but they were really my dad’s records. It was a huge stack, from “Cotton Eyed Joe” to “I Wanna Bop With You Baby”. I wore those records out.”

It was evident early on that Cheree had an artistic gift. “I used to walk around all the time singing my own words that I would make up out of the blue. I never did write anything down though. The fireplace was my stage. I wrote plays that I made my cousins or neighbors act out with me on the fireplace. My parents were always the audience. And of course I pretended in my dresser mirror with a hair brush that I was a back up singer for New Kids on the Block. Did I just admit that?”

Even though the evidence was there, it never dawned on Cheree that she could become an artist herself. “No one in my family had ever done anything like that before, so I just thought that the singers were from somewhere extra special or something.” Cheree just carried on with her normal life, having dreams of being an accountant someday. “I was in Chorus in middle school and high school, but my passion back then was cheerleading.” She went on with her plans to attend the University of Alabama and major in Accounting. “Music found me again in college. I was in Accounting and had decided I was going to work for the FBI. The way it all happened was some of my friends asked me to go with them to a karaoke bar. So I went and decided to get up and sing. Everyone made such a big deal, and that got my mind wondering. I started writing and singing every chance I got from then on out. I told my mom I wanted to sing and she immediately set me up with a recording session during the summer to record some of the songs that I had written. The rest is history.”
